New Year Intentions
Good morning and Happy New Year's day to all of you. Don't you love the newness of this day. It's shiny and bright, unblemished and the whole entire year is rolled out in front of us. I love January 1st. Along with the beginning of a new year, I see a chance for improvement and growth.
New intentions, old intentions, both resurrected. I've been in list making mode the past few days. Writing thoughts down to paper makes the goals real and justified. So here it goes, my ideas and focuses.
-I received from Santa a great new cookbook and I've been reading the chapters here and there and want to incorporate more whole food cooking in our diet. This cookbook is good, I love the recipes and the photos and how "doable" they are as I read them. I also think we will both like eating them.
-Yoga every single day. That about sums it up.
-Eating less sugar (who me??)
State of Mind:
-practice living in the "now" and quit borrowing the "what if this happens in the future" thinking. I battle this one all the time but whenever I'm engaging in that slippery slope of thinking, I'm going to stop, breathe, re think my thoughts. Baby steps!!
-pursue more creativity through drawing and watercolors. I bought the supplies and even my sister bought me some lovely watercolors. Let's dive in this year!!
-I have an incredible urge to purge some closets and corners of my home. When we painted the main level for the wedding,, I loved that new look feeling. So I want to continue that feeling and clean out what I do not need or want and give it to someone who put it to good use.
-I'd love to finish this blanket before the first day of spring.
-knitting more would be a silly goal but I do love to knit a lot so I'll throw an easy intention in.
-read diverse books, expand my comfort level of genres. Read more?? I read 30 books last year and I loved that I made time for reading. So I'll repeat this goal.
So there you go, a list of intentions. After I hit the publish button, I'm un-decorating the house and opening up clean wide empty spaces. So good.
What are you planning for the new year?
